Abstract: The Río de la Plata (RdP), located at 35°S on the Atlantic west coast, is considered among the most turbid waters of the world. The capital cities of Argentina (Buenos Aires) and Uruguay (Montevideo), the most important harbors of the region, and many industrial poles are located on its coasts. Moreover, the estuary constitutes the main source of drinking water for the millions of inhabitants in the region. As a consequence the river is constantly under pressure from human activities and environmental changes. In this study, we analyzed the capability of sensors originally designed for land observations for detecting fine scale structures in the turbid waters of RdP and describe their potential use.Summary: We analyzed the capability of sensors originally designed for land observations for detecting fine scale structures in the turbid waters of Río de la Plata and describe their potential use.References: Dogliotti, A., Ruddick, K., Nechad, B., Doxaran, D., Knaeps, E., 2015.
